Q. Why should I go for mobile development?

Ans :-In today’s mobile world, there should be no question as to whether a business should have a Mobile App (i.e. its own proactive mobile presence) … only to when.  Would you ask whether your business should have a website, for example? Of course not – in today’s internet-based world, where almost everyone goes to the Worldwide Web for answers and providers in response to whatever questions they may have, as well as to communicate whatever their own messages and services may be, the idea of a business not having its own website is silly! And yet, did you know that:
  • there are more mobile phones than PC’s, and 64% of mobile phone time is spent on Apps?
  • Customers use mobile Apps 6x more than websites?
  • On average people check their mobile phones over 150 times a day – that’s once every 6 minutes!?
  • 79% of smartphone users use their phones to make purchasing decisions and over 50% of those users make some sort of purchase with-in 1 hour compared to 1 month on a desktop?
  • 85% of business owners have a smartphone and 73% of them use Apps on a daily basis?
  • Windows 8 is a mobile operating system – this is the new standard for OS’s – Microsoft is not giving anyone a choice – everything and everyone is being directed towards mobile

Android Development Process

⬜Android applications are primary written in the Java programming language.

⬜The Java source files are converted to Java class files by the Java compiler.

⬜Android provides a tool dx which converts Java class files into a dex (Dalvik Executable) file. All class files of one application are placed in one compressed .dex file. 

⬜The .dex file and the resources of an Android project, e.g. the images and XML files are packed into an .apk(Android Package) file.

⬜The resulting .apk file contains all necessary data to run the Android application and can be deployed to an Android device.
